This document shows the progress of an ongoing investigation about the formation of feminist collectives of students in Mexico since 2014 with the aim of denouncing and demanding the authorities to address cases of violence and harassment in their schools. We start from the hypothesis that these feminist collectives are part of the new activism emerging in Latin America, which are susceptible of analysis from the perspective of social movements, with special emphasis on the relationship they build with other agents and institutions as well as their innovative internal organizational processes. The current scenario shows that the political position of these collectives is located in a relational way with the activation of feminist protest at a global level, the use and communication allowed by social networks and the transformation processes experienced in the field of higher education, in what I call the double anchorage of the processes of institutionalization of gender perspective in universities.
